Cala Mia Island Resort


Winner of Fodor’s Choice Award 2010, Cala Mia is a charming, comfortable boutique hotel situated on the island of Boca Brava off Panama’s Pacific coast, not far from the town of David.
Its eco-credentials include partial solar power in the rooms and no additives or colourings in the delicious Italian and New World meals, cooked with produce from its own organic garden and dairy farm and served overlooking the beautiful islands and ocean. Five per cent of the room rate goes to programmes supporting the local population. Furnishings are locally made and custom designed.
Boca Brava is a large, virtually uninhabited island within the Golfo Chiriqui National Marine Park which protects over 100 islands with innumerable secluded beaches and bays.

Another great holiday arranged by the Reef and Rainforest team. Fantastic service from John Melton as ever. The ground agents worked hard to ensure our trip was not affected by the weather.
